SINASAPA WOCEKIYE TAEYVNPAHA SEPTEMBER 15, 1910. 



THE CATHOLIC INDIANS OF SOUTH DAKOTA MEET. 
BISHOP BUSCH WITH THEM. HIS IMPRESSION. 



13 CONVERSIONS. 



The diocese of Lead, S. D. has 6500 Catholic Indians. They 
form 68 societies, 34 St. Joseph's for men and as many St. Ma- 
ry's for ladies. A Congress, that is a general meeting is held at 
Cheyenne Agency, S. D. the 15th, 16, and 17th of July. At least 
1500 of these Indians, their Bishop, and five of their missionaries 
are present. The two societies of Crow Creek Reservation, 
Sioux Palls' diocese are also represented. Many Protestant In- 
dians are here too. 

Tne meetings are held in a large, round hall, made by Indians 
out of tree stems and branches. High over this cool structure 
waves the flag of our country. 

Justin Eagle Feather, a full-blood Indian, is president, and 
Louis Mousseau, a mixed-blood, secretary. 

PROCEEDINGS. 

1. Report. 2. Wishes. 3. Resolutions. 

1. Report for the last 12 months. 

Two societies have been started. Almost each society has one, 
a few two meetings a month. Each society has received some 
money, many about $50- , a few about $100- How have they get 
it? The men's societies by collecting, the lidies, mainly by mak- 
ing and selling bead work and clothing. The latter ones have 
raised more money than the former ones. How have they spent 
it? This way: they helped their poor, their sick, the'r church; a 
few societies have also done somethin g for their priest &catechist. 

2. WISHES: The people of this Reservation ask the Bishop 
for a second priest, as they have but one, although their district 
is large, has about 4500 square miles. They also wish the Bish 
op would dedicate two of their churches, St. Mary's, 20 miles 
from here, and St. John the Evangelist's, 35 miles. Bull Head 
Station, Standing Rock Reservation, would like to get a resident 
priest. The two societies on Grand River, also Standing Rock 
Reservation, ask the Bishop for a church and give him $104-00 
for that purpose. All the catechists ask for more pay. 

3. RESOLUTIONS: 1. Each society shall elect a committee 
of two to find out what can be done for the benefit of its own so- 
ciety. 

2. These committees of each Reservation shall meet every 
third month and report to the Bishop, 

3. We want to send one of our men to the next meeting the Fe- 
deration of the Catholic Societies will hold. 

4. We want to send Sam Charger. 

5. At each of our congresses the Indians of Crow Creek, dio- 
cese of Sioux Falls, shall, be given the same rights as we have. 

6. Our next congress shall be held the coming year at Pine 
Bidge. 

Also the following motion is made: ''Anyone .who marries 
against the law of the church, shall be expeiled trom -the socie- 
ty." However they don't vote on it. The Bishop advises "them 
to drop this matter and report to him each single case. 

Many societies and individuals give the Bishop some money? 
Total $200- He accepts it with thanks, and tells them, he will 
use it for their catechists. 

THIS THREE DAYS ME STING IS A THREE DAYS MISSION. 

Each day six Masses, three sermons, evening devotion and be- 
nediction; the first and second day special instructions for those 
who intend to join the church, also for those who can be confirm- 
ed. The last Mass is always said in the hall. During it the Bish- 
op himself preaches each time. What does he tell his Indians in 



the very first sermon he gives them? He tells them what they 
must believe in order to be saved. One of the missionaries is his 
interpreter, 

Forest City is the nearest town to our Agency; it has a news- 
paper; its editor, a Protestant, has come to see and hear our 
Bishop. In his issue of the 21st instant this Protestant says what 
follows; "The Bishop preached each forenoon. He is a pleasant 
and forceful speaker and made a good impression on all who heard 
him." Each time two short sermons, one in English and one in 
Indian. The first evening, Friday, July 15th, devotion to the 
Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Bishop consecrates bis Indians to 
the Divine Heart. Saturday evening, devotion to the blessed 
Virgin Mary. 

CONVERSIONS. Eleven of the converts have been Protest- 
ants and two Pagans. The latter two are old men; one over 60 
and the other over 70 years old. 

COMMUNIONS. About 250 receive communion Sunday, Ju- 
ly 17. A few already Saturday and a few Monday. 

CONFIRMATION. 

Seventy-seven get confirmed. One third of them are adults. 

TEMPERANCE. 

The Bishop mentions the sad case that has happened recently 
in South St. Paul. He praises those who have taken the pledge, 
encourages them to keep it, and advises others to take it; ten 
do so. Many have in years past taken the pledge. Bishop Sta- 
riha has given it to them. 

A WORD TO THE SOLDIERS OF CHRIST. 

After confirmation the writer of this article says what follows; 
"Christians; you are now soldiers of Christ. You all are willing, 
even glad to fight for Him. There is some danger that Christ 
will lose His birthday. , A great many don't give anymore Christ- 
mas day to the Christ-child, but to Santa Claus. Soldiers of 
Christ you can fight for Christ so that He can keep His birth- 
day. How? This way; you yourselves give that day to Him. 
You do all you can, that others will do so too. Buy and send 
Christmas cards which represent Christ, and not Santa Claus. 
On Christmas eve represent in your homes the manger with the 
Christ-child. On Christmas day speak of Christ child, sing in 
honor of Christ-child, give presents in honor of Christ-child. By 
doing so you show that you are soldiers of Christ. 

HOW THE INDIANS HONOR THEIR BISHOP. 

When coming twenty riders receive him at the boundry. He 
comes up to the church between two lines formed by the many 
hundreds who have come to the congress. As he goes each after- 
noon from the house to the hall, the men-folks are lined up to his 
right, and the women-folks to his left. 

THE BISHOP AND THE YOUNG FOLKS. 

What do they do for him? What does he do for them? What 
do they do together? 

Right at his arrival they sing the song, "Welcome to our Bish- 
op." They help to form lines, whenever lines are formed. 
When the Bishop goes to the hall in the forenoon, six altarboys 
precede him. Nearly all of the twenty riders who have received 
him at the boundry, are lads. 

The sermon the Bishop gives the second forenoon, is especial- 
ly intended for the young folks. Friday during the evening de- 
votion both the Bishop and the young folks read together aloud 
"the consecration of mankind to the Sacred Heart of Jesus," a 
prayer made by Pope Leo XIII. During the Divine Services 
there is congregational singing. All the young folks, Bishop and 
priests sing together: "Holy God we praise Thy Name," "Like a 
strong raging Fire,"' Daily, daily sing to Mary," and some other 
church hymns.

BISHOP'S IMPRESSION. 

He says the following: "A 
marked feature of the congress is 
the readiness and ease with which 
both, men and women, ad- 
dress the meetings, the respect- 
ful behaviour of all, and the 
thoughtfulness and intelligent 
interest manifested in all the 
speakers. One would hardly find 
any white Catholic congrega- 
tion that, could do better in pub- 
lic and few would show an equal 
number of men taking part in the 
public prayers as well as in 
singing of n /mns. The frank 
criticisms expressed without any 
ill will are a delightful innova- 
tion, while the Indians here re- 
veal a sense and a talent for hu- 
mor that one is not accustomed to 
suppose an Indian possessed of. 

SOUVENIR. 

In order to help the people to 
remember yet long these clays, 
souvenir cards have been made, 
containing the date and place of 
Congress, and a few of the most 
important words Our Lord has 
said.
